Function of our current society.
No push-back against zero concern about public disruption for sake of 'official convenience'.
(a) cops closing down main routes for 6 hours for a scene examination after road crashes.
This clearly doesn't make our roads any safer - yet nobody says it's unacceptable.
What a piece of utterly uninformed and disgustingly self-centred commentary. I am hardly known as a rabid defender of the police (in fact I am probably one of the most critical on here) but having prosecuted dangerous driving causing death/injury charges and done work that helped to decide such cases for the judiciary, I know for a fact that these scene examinations are (1) absolutely vital to discovering the truth as to what happened, (2) holding offenders who have committed criminal breaches to account, and (3) are done with urgency by people charged with doing their work to a very high standard and balancing that with the need to re-open roads ASAP. The Serious Crash Unit of the police doesn't get involved unless there is a serious crash, which entails either serious injuries and/or fatalities. Just step away from your soapbox for a moment and think whether you might mind that theSCU just do a cursory examination if it was your loved one that was involved in a crash, especially if the person was involved through no fault of his/her own.
"Function of our current society" it is alright. That there are people who are so remarkably self-centred as to think it justifiable to fire off such uninformed cheapshots at people doing important work after devastating events that have utterly shattered others' lives. My god, you are delayed maybe once or twice a year because of this? The world weeps.
